Ever since he was a puppy, Tonic has had a bit of a short leg problem. His stubby little corgi legs aren’t the best for big jumps or leaps, and when it came time for him to learn how to jump up onto the couch, his parents quickly realized it wasn’t a skill he was going to master.
“He always had trouble jumping onto things ever since he was a puppy,” Serena Juan, Tonic’s mom, told The Dodo. “He still cannot jump onto the couch, but we see that as a safer circumstance for him anyway so we never encouraged him to learn. We just pick him up, and place him wherever he wants to be.”
